What I did
State House, MIT, Harvard Square
I finally got to stay in this popular Hostel at $39/night including breakfast. I took the . Every night they offer an event, and I went along on a Jazz night at a pub but it was too packed so the group went on to another one the first night . I chose to stay in the hostel (rather than a hotel) over American Thanksgiving Nov. 24 as I knew there would be people around to hang out with for turkey! As it turns out, the hostel cooked all guests (over 200!) turkey dinner complete with stuffing, gravy, pumpkin and apple pie, all free! Pretty amazing. During the day I went to church service at Trinity Church, a very old, huge and beautiful church in downtown Boston. Very upbeat gospel music with such a talented choir and individuals who could be recording artists. As most things were closed Thanksgiving Day (including grocery stores!) I found the only thing to do during the day, other than have a close up look at the Scientology Buildings which were only a block away from the hostel, was to go to a movie, "My Week with Marilyn" which was entertaining. After that, back to hostel for turkey and then out for drinks with those at my table who were mainly my dormmates as well.
